Sustainable Financial Management Planning for Water Utilities Presentation

EPA hosted a one-hour webinar on June 15, 2020 to hear about key themes and case studies from utilities around the country that are developing and implementing sustainable financing practices. The webinar provides examples and lessons other utilities can use as they begin or continue their own journeys toward fiscal sustainability. Water sector utilities across the nation face increasing financial challenges due to aging infrastructure, population changes, cost increases, and environmental challenges. To find solutions, utilities are looking for innovative approaches to build a sustainable foundation to prepare for the future.
